Good news for the loyal Kings fan.
Many of them thought the Kings had played their last game in Sacramento, but at least for now, they have been saved.
The Sacramento Kings will remain in California’s capital next season, according to Randy Youngman of the Orange County Register. Youngman reports that operators of Anaheim’s Honda Center — where the Kings would have played if the team relocated to Orange County — were notified by the Maloof family that the team’s relocation bid had ended. Monday was the NBA’s deadline for the Maloofs to file for relocation.
The NBA and Maloofs are expected to release statements on the decision on Monday.
Unfortunately this is like a separated married couple. Divorce is still staring the City of Sacramento in the face, but at least they have some time for counseling.
